Although many studies have been done on training teachers in computers, questions have been raised on the approach of delivering methods of training. In this case study, observations were made of the district's technology support training sessions offered to teachers. The purpose of the training was to prepare teachers to handle computer hardware and to integrate the technology use into the classroom. Also noted were the methodologies and effectiveness of training that was given by the instructors. Questionnaires were made available to teachers to provide feedback on their training experience and outcomes of teachers' participation. In addition, from the eight schools that participated in this case study, one school was selected for interviews with teachers to see how effective the trainings were. With this purpose in mind, the case study includes information about the support teachers receive in the technical and instructional knowledge of computers by this particular school district.
